We had a delicious grilled sea bass (called "roballo" in Portuguese) that tasted as if it had leapt out of the sea onto the grill. We also had grilled squid that was less successful but still very good. And an excellent mixed salad with grilled onions, peppers, lettuce and tomato. This area of the docks is about 20 minutes drive... More

Located in a street with several fish restaurants. Good fresh fish. Sometimes you have to wait a lot to have a free table. There are some details that make a difference and sometimes the staff miss that.

If you like seafood you'd find it really difficult to find better locally. The service and atmosphere is fun especially if sitting outside and the grouper I highly recomend. Be prepared to pay upwards of €40 per head plus drinks and worth every penny.

In a must see street of local restaurants this is very much worth the visit. Great to see it full of locals on the All Souls holy day and public holiday;the welcoming plates of shrimps and barnacles is a nice start. The owner is welcoming and happy to explain the fish; he's open with the price so no nasty surprises... More

Just a quick trip on the #500 bus from the Foz area of Porto to Matoshinos and we found Dom Peixe and all we can say is WOW! Start with masterfully grilled sardines, the most buttery, soft octopus, padron peppers and then grilled seabass. Follow with Creme Caramel (off the grill!), port and roll yourself back to the hotel!
